2016 Turning on the Xmas Lights

18th of November 2016 – Perth City Forest Chase

The annual Perth Turning on the Christmas Lights was held on the 18th November 2016 in forest chase. The theme for this year’s event is “Where in the world  Santa clause”. The story involved the elves and Mrs Clause travelling around the world in looking for Santa. Each country they arrived in was met with a cultural performance of that country. Countries the elves and Mrs Clause went to look for Santa was India, China, and Hawaii to name a few.

When the elves and Mrs Clause arrived in China, they were met with the Chinese Community Centre Lion Dance Troupe’s Lions. With the loud roll of the drum , the 3 lions entered through the crowd and began their performance. The lions showed displays of high aerial jumps and interactions with the 6000 + audience. The lions then made it towards the stage where then Mrs Clause asked the lions if they have seen Santa, but unfortunately they have not. The lions then left the stage as the elves and Mrs Clause continued with their search.

The elves and Mrs Clause eventually found Santa, and before the 6000+ audience, they lit the Perth Christmas lights. The event was extremely successful with everyone at the event engaging in the theme of the event, and expressing their true Christmas spirit.

The CCC Lion Dance Troupe would love to thank the organisers of this event for allowing us this great and fun opportunity in being part of this production. We here all wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Ronny and Gowri’s Wedding

12th of November 2016 – The Mosmans Restaurant

The Chinese Community Centre Lion Dance Troupe performed at the wedding of Ronny and Gowri, held at the beautiful The Mosmans Restaurant in Mosman Park.

All the guests were awaiting the arrival of the bride and groom outside the jetty of the restaurant. The Bride and Groom then arrived and walked down the jetty, lead by the 2 lions and the musical band. Once the Bride and Groom joined the guests, the lions commenced their performance where they put on a display of acrobatic jumps and interaction with the guests. The lions peeled and presented 8 oranges to the newly weds as a sign of luck. The lions then presented a good luck blessing scroll to the newly weds before finishing the performance. The performance was one that was very much enjoyed by all.

The CCC Lion Dance Troupe would like to wish Ronny and Gowri all the best in their new lives together! Congratulations!
